1 Rejoice, the year upon its way
has brought again this blessed day
when on the Church by Christ our Lord
the Holy Spirit was outpoured.
2 From out the heav'ns a rushing noise
came like the tempest's sudden voice,
and mingled with th'Apostles' prayer,
proclaimed loud that God was there.
3 Like quiv'ring tongues of light and flame,
upon each one the Spirit came:
tongues, that the earth might hear their call,
and fire, that love might burn in all.
4 And so to all were spread abroad
the wonders of the works of God;
they knew the prophet's word fulfilled,
and owned the gift which God had willed.
5 Look down, most gracious God, this day
upon thy people as they pray;
and Christ the Lord upon us pour
the Spirit's gift for evermore.
